Church is open to look inside or to just pray in solitude. Across from it is the weather station and the Punta lighthouse.

Nice little church to poke around in as you walk from one side of the peninsula to the other. Lighthouse right nearby, too.

This is quite an unusual church, given the fact that it is blue. It is also situated very close to a meterological office - you can see from one of the photos I took. Didn't get a chance to see the inside, however I am...More

It's not everday you see a blue church. Great photo op and "must do" stop because you get two iconic structures for the "price" of one, with the lighthouse so close. We went here on a guided bike tour and got to hear about it...More

Very nice square to walk around with two lighthouse close to the church. The church is very simple, small , but well build. Very silent, nice to have a pray in between all the visits.

It is a warm place, very well kept in front of the lighthouse. It is a quiet area and you should not miss, not only for simplicity but also surrounded by good places to eat after Sunday Mass.

We were driving by and saw this beautiful blue church and it was open so we stopped in to see it... Very worth the look and the visit. The inside is as cute and beautiful as the outside.

A small but beautiful plaza in the old town area featuring the Iglesias church, lighthouse and some beautiful private homes. Worth visiting on a sunny day. A short 5 minute walk to the marina and about 20 minutes to the Playa Bravia beach and 'hand'.

This simple but beautiful church is located next to the lighthouse. No much to see in there, but it worth a visit.
